Our professional custom-made earplugs are essential for many professions. Because work earplugs are custom-made for everyone, you will have the best possible hearing protection at work.
In recent years, we see workers in construction, industry, security, transportation and nightlife increasingly wearing work earplugs. Thank goodness, because hearing damage is in the top 3 occupational diseases. With increasing attention being paid to the harmful effects of too loud noise, hopefully this will soon change.
In some occupations, loud noise cannot be avoided. Think of construction and industry where machines produce a lot of noise. Or nightlife and the music industry where the volume is often very high. Do you expose your employees to so many decibels every day? Then hearing damage is almost inevitable. By offering professional custom-made earplugs, you protect your employees’ ears and prevent permanent hearing damage.
Do you expose your employees daily to noise levels above 80 dB? Then, according to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, you must make earplugs available. Your employees are not required to wear them. This is only required when the noise level exceeds 85 dB. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend wearing otoplastics above 80 dB. Long-term exposure to more than 80 dB can be harmful to the ears.
But how loud is 80 dB really? There is a good way to test whether you are below or above that noise level. Can you no longer understand someone standing 1 meter away or do you have to constantly raise your voice? Then we are probably talking about a noise level of 80 dB or more. That noise level doesn’t hurt your ears yet, but it can have damaging effects in the long run.
The consequences of hearing damage go far beyond early deafness. In recent years, we have been hearing more and more about tinnitus and tinnitus. With the latter, people continuously hear an annoying beep, hum or other disturbing sound. This has a major impact on work and life. Thus, hearing damage often also causes a series of mental complaints. Think insomnia, stress, fatigue and even depression. Employees get burnout or drop out permanently.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires employers to take measures to reduce noise levels above 87 dB. In construction and industry, this can be done, for example, by investing in quieter machinery. Or by having employees spend a maximum of a few hours in a noisy room, so that their ears get a rest in between.
In addition, proper education about the danger of too loud noise and the use of professional earplugs is important. By wearing otoplastics when the noise level does exceed 80 dB, hearing damage can be prevented.
An otoplasty is a professional earplug that we custom make at Audinc. This ensures a perfect fit to the ear canal. In addition, the earplugs only filter out harmful noise. Conversations can still be held and ambient noise can still be heard. This makes them ideal for professional use.
At Audinc, we have a clear mission. We want to teach everyone how to safely deal with loud noises. Wearing professional earplugs during work is an important part of that. As long as hearing damage is in the top 3 of occupational diseases, there is still a lot of work for us to do. By providing interactive presentations on noise, hearing and hearing protection, among other things, we hope to create the necessary awareness and support.
We also make it easy for employers to have otoplastics fitted to their employees. We are happy to visit them on site. We also do this for information, hearing tests, checks and maintenance. We can even take noise measurements in the workplace to determine exactly the noise levels against which the work earplugs need to protect. So you can be sure that your employees get the hearing protection they need.
Hearing damage has a major impact on the work and lives of your employees. Therefore, protect their hearing with Audinc’s custom-made otoplastics, which we will come to measure and make sure you comply with occupational health and safety legislation.
